As expected, one of Nigeria’s most travelled celebrity and Chief Executive Officer, Ovation Media Group, Aare Dele Momodu, has bagged yet another award, an addition to his array of landmark awards and honours.
This time, the recently installed Akinrogun of Gbonganland, who is also the Aare of Iwoland, was honoured with the Prestigious Value Leadership award by an organisation, Nigeria, which is a subsidiary of Moonlite Integrated Concept.
Presenting the award at the event, which was held at the Terra Kulture, Victoria Island, Pastor Henry Emineke, described Momodu as one of the individuals, who have ‘demonstrated exceptional dedication to their fields, and have made notable impacts on the social fabrics of our nation’.
He praised Momodu for his admirable efforts, which have not gone unnoticed, adding that honoring him is crucial for inspiring positive change.
To spice up the night of accolades, which was anchored by MC Prince, was a presentation of ‘Nigeria’, a stage play, which raised the hopes of Nigerians in the Nigerian project, denouncing the ‘japa’ syndrome, as well as performances from Timi Dakolo, Ashley Olabisi and Bashiru Mohammed.
Other individuals that were also honoured on the night include Hon. Stella Okotete, Pastor John Obuseh, Rebecca Odumbaku Captain Ado sanusi, Ali Baba and Ambassador Okpokome Ibru.
Dele Momodu, without an iota of doubt stands tall among those who have been diligent in businesses, and it is therefore, no surprise that he has stood, and is still standing not just before kings but with kings.
Born Ayòbámidélé Àbáyòmí Ojútelégàn Àjàní Momodu on May 16, 1960, some 63 years ago, Chief Dele Momodu as he is known in the business circle, and Bob Dee, in the social stage, is by every standard a man who is diligent in his business. And it is no wonder that he has not only stood before kings, he had and continues to dine with kings. There is practically no influential person that Dele Momodu does not know across the length and breadth of Nigeria, Africa and on the inter-continental stage. He is that large!
By every standard a rare breed, Momodu is many things in one..”
